    EDGE browser has line about favorites at top - won't go away..


    I have installed the Anniv edition and have a small niggle with the EDGE browser.

    At the top it says 'Add to the favorites bar by selecting * or by getting them from another browser IMPORT YOUR FAVORITES..


    I've clicked the import link and it worked, now how can I make it go away? I think I've tried all the display options I can find.

    Anyone?

    Go to Edge Settings > View Favourites Settings > Turn off 'Show The Favourites Bar'

    There's a tutorial here:

    Turn off the Favorites Bar as @ARC1020 indicated or populate the Bar with links.
    Either way, the initial banner will disappear.

    Ok thanks. Is there a way to keep the favorites bar but get rid of that message?

    Empty? No.
    But, if you just open a new tab and type about:blank and bookmark it with no text, you'll only have a tiny generic icon at the far left.
